Château la Gurgue Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 2005
The history of Château La Gurgue is closely linked to the village of Margaux. Successively, two owners of the vineyard raced for the Town Hall of Margaux and won. The first was a wealthy Portuguese banker, Mr. Peixotto. In 1871, he added to the vineyard some beautiful lands, which were located around the Parish of Margaux. Later, another mayor of Margaux, Mr Camille Lenoir became the owner of Château La Gurgue. He gave his name to the Château and enriched it with some valuable plots surrounded by the vineyard of Château Margaux. They are located at Curton, on the best croups of Margaux. The Château then returned to its original name "La Gurgue", which is a locality of the village. Claire VILLARS LURTON is the architect of this revival. Year after year, she works with the upmost delicacy to express in her wine the unique terroir of Château La Gurgue.

Has lots of plummy and ripe fruit, with hints of meat and spice. Full-bodied, soft and round, with lovely coffee and berry flavors.
Food Pairings for Château la Gurgue Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux
A dark red color, aromas of red fruits and spices. A very complex bouquet. A beautiful structure. The tannins are still there but they are getting mellow. Length in the mouth, harmony and finesse. Wine of great elegance.
50 000 bottles produced.
Notes: In french oak barrels during 12 months. New ones at 25%
